Fantastic Donald Ross course. Really important to stay under the hole, otherwise prepare to 3 putt! Greens were running reasonably today (~10). Lots of Ross touches: deep grass mound bunkers, crowned greens and interesting fairway shots. While it reads to be a short course from an overall yardage standpoint, it is a par 70 and every hole seems long. While the bunkers are deep, they are fantastic and relatively easy to get a lot of spin on the ball. Wonderful course if you are a strong player. Women's tees are set too far back in my opinion so my gal shot an 83 instead of under 80. Great course! Great bargain if you can find one at GolfNow: $35!

One of my favorites. I have played after a lot of rain and the course holds it very well, especially the fairways. This course is old, well kept, and feels like a country club. Greens are well protected so you can swing away from the tees but need to be accurate on approach. I will return many times to Ravisloe. Love it!

The Chicagoland golf community was given a true gift when this formerly private course was opened to the public. This Donald Ross gem features lots of different looks, shots and shapes throughout the 18 holes. It's certainly unlike the newer courses in the area and should be a must play for all Donald Ross disciples.

This is a very special place. The star of the show is the bunkering. I have never seen bunkering like this anywhere else (though I hear Olympia Fields is similar). You can just feel the history and tradition. I swear this place is haunted. You can feel the spirit of golfers past. Very enjoyable to play and I want to encourage all the golfers out there to support this place and thank the animal doctor who saved it and opened it up to the public. Check out what old-school golf design is all about!

Old school course, recently made open to the public.
When I visited the course, it was after a heavy rain the previous day. Thought the $69 green fee [no cart]was pricey for what you got.

In all fairness to the ratings, still undergoing renovations from being taken public. Club house is beautiful spanish mission style. Only a small bar is open, with limited drink selection. No water stations on the course, bev cart only showed up after I finished, perhaps due to the very wet conditions. Clubhouse is not very close to #9 at the turn, to eat or reload beverages.
There is 'halfway house'/snack shop at the end of #10 that is not yet opened.

I would suggest playing just for the history and the fact that it is a Ross redesign course. Not many Ross influenced courses available to the public in these parts.

Greens were average in difficulty, but the bunkering and mounding were the best design feature.

I will check this out in a couple of months to measure progress.
